There are three layers of lighting for every room. They are ambient lighting, task lighting and accent lighting. Ambient lighting, which is usually the ceiling lights, like recessed lights, give the room an overall illumination. Task lighting are lights that light up areas where you perform tasks, like cooking or reading. Generally task lights are under counter lights in a kitchen, over counter pendant lights, a desk light for reading, a vanity light in a bathroom or a reading lamp by a bed. Accent lights are lights that light up an area in the room to accentuate. Accent lighting are sconce lights, table lamps, artwork lighting, up-lighting under a tree. Accent lights bring life and glow to a room and help create a mood.
